First Day of Preschool

Hey everyone!! How's it goin?? Me?? I'm wiped out!!! LOL!! Today was my DD's first day of Co-op preschool and I forgot how much work it is helping out in class!! It was a busy day, lots to do and clean up! I was in charge of helping the kids make gingerbread cookies (um, can we say messy??) Then with all the other activities and just keeping up with all the kids, I feel completely zapped! But, she had a BLAST and completely loved it and can't wait to go back! She had sharing today and I was so proud of her, she wasn't nervous at all, so excited to tell everyone about her toy kitty she brought in and even put it on the green mat so all the kids could play with it.

I'll share a simple card today. I made this a couple weeks ago for my mom cuz she bought these stamps and wanted an idea of what to do with them.

Then I saw this post by Jeanne S and thought I'd give the sponging a try!! I still need some help with it, but it did give the card a little something more than the original.

Stamps: A Muse Cow, Grass and Moo-chas Grass-ias
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Soft Sky, R20 Blush Copic
Papers: A Muse Fern notecard, black, white
Accessories: ribbon by May Arts?, dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous week!

I'm not a good helper in the school setting. I know how much work it is. I always got stuck with the "hard" kids! LOL Glad you survived!
Totally cute card. You did great on the sponging. I need to try that too :)

So glad she had a great first day of school! And, I love the card. That sponging technique is really cool, and it adds so much to the card!
